This fabulous photo was recently shared by Alex Rochead.
Taken in the mid 20th Century, what’s noticeable right away are the beautiful large trees, now no longer there. Some of these trees may have been later felled in the 1970s to make way for the Africa Pavilions. Shuttle Row, a museum by the time of this photo, looks well kept and cared for.
